Here is a picture:
When I was a child, there was a guy in my neighborhood that had a Model T (it had a back seat) and sometimes he would take all of the kids for a ride around the neighborhood. Now fast forward. When I met my husband, he loved old cars - he sold an old Army Jeep to help pay for the wedding. After we had been married for a few years, my husband wanted to buy an antique car. Our first car was a 1940 Ford that he played around with. We joined a local antique car club and his hobby began. We enjoyed many outings with the car club in our Ford and I loved watching the children whenever we were in a local parade. After many years and we had lived in our home for quite some time, I told him about my childhood rides around the neighborhood in a Model T Ford. One of the gentlemen in our car club knew that I really loved his Model T and when he died, his wife offered it to me for sale. Now, when I bought this car, it came in buckets:
Because it was not my husband's favorite car, it took him many years to restore it to its present condition. We have had it at several car shows and it has won awards. Now, we love to just put the top down and once again, I am riding in my very own Model T Ford. It is tricky to drive - everything is down through three pedals on the floor so I am now in the process of trying to learn to drive it. Let's just hope I don't wreck it and all of my husband's hard work in making my dream come alive.
What are some of your other hobbies?
